Who Is Bryan Cooper?

Bryan Cooper is a versatile musician, primarily playing drums, cajon, and percussion in the South Jersey/Philadelphia market. Often described as being a solid "in-the-pocket" drummer, who reads music, and appreciates the dynamics of the music he is playing, "Coop" has performed with many rock, blues, folk and jazz ensembles, acoustic artists, marching corps, orchestras, and theatrical workshops. Bryan also dabbles on electric bass, rhythm guitar, and keyboard, and has even penned a few original songs. He is also experienced in live audio, sound-cueing, recording, and stage lighting.

Currently available for fill-in, short-term, and longer-term work, Bryan's recent collaborations include
The McLain ConspiracyLost Art, and fill-in performances with Random Notes and Sweet Revenge. He is also a frequent guest performer with one of New Jersey's premier 80s bands, The Suspects, and the high-powered 99 Reasons.
 
He has performed in all kinds of venues, from some of the smallest watering holes in the region, to legendary venues such as Philadelphia's Theater of The Living Arts (TLA), Philadelphia's Legendary Dobbs, and several theater and outdoor venues.  He has also performed at many private events and corporate events in Orlando FL and New Orleans LA.
